Since the Orlando trade I decided to take a different approach to the Phoenix Front Office. I decided that Rob Sarver is our owner, and as an owner, he is trying to do everything in his power to keep the Phoenix Suns competitive. Therefore, I have completely been able to get on board with the idea of receiving Vince Carter. Here is one big reason why you should too.
The Phoenix Suns are the model of consistency and success. If you dont believe me, type in Phoenix Suns record history on google, you'll find out that the Suns have reached the playoffs 30 times, and have had a winning record 28 times, and this is out of a 42 year history. Gone is the Era of the Stoudemire and Nash, the Big three of Marion, Nash and STAT, and the D'antoni ssol. Yet the Suns have still propped themselves to 9th in the conference, half a game behind the Blazers. Sarver made a cost cutting move that actually enhanced the prospects of this team. We saw the fight and the passion of this team when they were shorthanded against two elite western conference teams. We saw the effects of depth, teamwork and chemistry have on a so-called mediocre team. With Carter out, the opportunity for Mickael Pietrus, Josh Cildress, and Jared Dudley to improve their games has presented itself. The opportunity to see what having not one but two good defensive centers for probably the first time in Phoenix Suns history is upon us. The opportunity to watch one of this games' greatest and most talented players awaits us. All in the the matter of a short 72-96 hours have the prospects of this season been drastically altered.
The doom and gloom perspective of a mediocre team should be banned. This team has some valuable chips to better itself in preparation for a serious run at glory. The assets the Suns have gained are golden in trying to attain that superstar that will transform a second round playoff team to a winner. There is no reason to think negatively about what the Suns team can achieve because the man behind the most successful years of this franchise is still here. The system that led to that success is still being utilized, except now the team has the advantage of depth and defense to catapult their chances. My dear friends on BSOTS take in my hand in this golden opportunity. Lets be positive as a community as a glorious chance is imminent; remove the dour aura and display that optimism.
